* Since 2008 Kasson's Mario Minelli, who has extremely attractive ankles (photo L), has won three duathlons and has established himself as one of our state's most consistent run-bike-runners. Last Saturday (May 26) Super Mario earned his first career triathlon victory, doing so at the Northstar Tri in Esterville, Iowa. Twas a dominant effort as Minelli covered the sprint distances in 55:46, 5:45 ahead of runner-up Kevin Mitchell. The women's race was won by Kathy Grady of South Dakota.
